Wargames Factory designs and manufactures an exceptional range of hard plastic miniatures for wargaming, collecting and painting
If that were my 'only' option, I think I'd be buying the big plastic bag of soldiers, that now seem to offer everything from the classic Green Army men, to cowboys and indians, even to knights. And just call it a day. LOL.That's like $58!!! For 12 mounted figures.

Victrix has done an excellent job on their ancients (chainmail excepted). I wish them future success.

I think they should do some more exotic races that can be used as proxies for the standard ones or do something different standard ones (preferably something that works with the historic lines WGF already has).
As to the Roman sets, I have heard everything from them being the best thing since sliced bread to them being worth it only because the price. from what I have seen of them, they appear good enough for any future projects I may have (historic or other wise) and I have seen far worse sculpts being sold for higher prices on ebay.

Or if they are as nice, the people who rave over the one, seem to want to denigrate WGF for some unknown reason (perhaps it is because they are not metal?)
